Anyone out there have any good suggestions for a solid web belt?

I was using MH's Double Back for awhile and I liked it being it was comfortable under a pack but the web belt was what one would call less than rigid and developed the bacon effect in a major way.

Thanks everyone.

Got my Bison at REI. They're stiff, have different widths, flat slide buckles, and you won't have to take out a 3rd mortgage to buy one.

Cool, thanks jad. I have looked at those. May have to take a trip to a local REI and check those out.

If you look for that particular buckle style, it does not slip at all.

I just want something that is low profile. I am not necessarily looking for a certain type of buckle. 

Web belts can come in handy for things like carring firewood/gathering kindling for shelter sites that have pre-made areas to burn, etc.

I actually used my MH on a pack that I was testing for review when the panel zipper malfunctioned half way into an 80 miler.

I was definitely glad I had it.

Croakies belts, artisan buckle, have worked well for me. Webbing is fairly stiff.

Or for Seattle cops, a good strap to beat the public with.

Rick, there is a belt, this one, a no brainer.  Used for something else but built for your concern.

Thanks for all of the mentions so far. I am looking into all of them.

Please feel free to post more. 

Options are a good thing.

I have tried quite a few, but have defaulted back to the very cheap BDU belt. Not the very wide Web/pistol belt, but just the regular issue web belt for normal wear with BDU pants.
